Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA Modules XMC-SLX

The XMC-SLX modules feature a user configurable Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA that contains 147,433 logic cells on a PCIe bus Interface. Field I/O is connected to the FPGA via the rear J4/P4 connector and/or with optional front mezzanine plug in I/O modules. Making it a flexible I/O processor module that can complete custom instruction sets.

This product is used for a range of applications. Typical uses include: hardware simulation, communications, in-circuit diagnostics, military servers, signal intelligence and image processing.

The Acromag XMC-SLX are Xilinx Spartan 6 FPGA Modules with Plug in I/O. This cost effective product comes with a high speed memory and high throughput on a PCIe interface. High speed memory banks handle data. Plus a dual-port SRAM allows high speed DMA transfers to the bus or CPU.

Firstly, there are 64 I/O lines which are accessible through the rear (J4) connector. Additional I/O processing is supported on a separate mezzanine card that simply plugs into the FPGA base board. Some external AXM I/O cards interface directly to the analog and digital I/O signals.

The XMC-SLX is also available in a conduction cooled design. The Conduction cooled version dissipates heat if there is inadequate air flow. The optional extended temperature models operate reliably from -40 to 85°C. Acromag also provide an Engineering Design Kit to operate with the XMC-SLX. It provides software utilities and example VHDL code to speed up the program development process. A JTAG interface allows on board VHDL debugging.
